LAHORE: Father of seven-year-old Zainab, who was killed after rape in Kasur, on Saturday filed a petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) demanding public hanging of convict Imran Ali.
Amin Ansari stated that Anti-Terrorism Act’s clause 22 allows the government to hang a convict in public.
An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC), while issuing the death warrants of Imran Ali on October 12, had ordered hanging Imran till death on October 17 at Central Jail in Lahore.
On February 2017, Imran was handed four separate death sentences after being convicted of the rape and murder of Zainab.
On June 12, Supreme Court (SC) had turned down Imran’s plea against death sentence.—INP
